best cousins - throwback thursday

I may have shared this photo on the blog before, but it is one of my favorites, so here it is again! This is the perfect Throwback Thursday photo of my cousin and I! I’m fairly certain we were wearing our Gramma and Grampa’s coats, hats, earmuffs and gloves and just being plain silly. I […]

Dad and The Giant Dinosaur :: Throw Back Thursday #tbt

Dinosaur Park 1988 - Rapid City, South Dakota

I have wanted to participate in Throwback Thursday for a while now, but I always forget! Not today! I dug out some old photos and hope to remember to share one, if not weekly, then at least once a month.  I adore this photo of my Dad and I with the giant green dinosaur statue […]

Thought I would share just a few of the ornaments on our Christmas tree.  My two favorites, of course, are the photo frames with childrens pictures. They were each placed on the tree for their first Christmas.   And, there are a few that remind me of my childhood. Like this fuzzy plastic Santa and […]

Deer Park visit 2011

You might recall that I shared one of my family’s So Good So Sweet moments with you a couple of weeks ago. I still smile to myself every time I think about our family’s trip to Deer Park on that hot day — and about how we made it fun and ended up smiling, laughing […]

My family’s #sogoodsosweet Moments!

Deer Park visit 2011

It’s Springtime and that means we’ll soon be able to get out and about to all of the places our state has to offer. Some of my favorite family moments are the ones we create by  hopping into the car for a road trip to a zoo, park or other attraction. My Dad always surprised […]

{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Cuddling with Grandma

mom and the kids

I’ve always loved this photo of my mom sitting on the couch cuddling with her grandchildren. Can you believe this was eleven years ago? Also, I never noticed it before but both of my silly kids have the same look on their face! If I’ve shared this photo before, I’m sorry — too lazy to sort […]

{almost?} Wordless Wednesday – too big boots

I have to be just a tiny bit wordy this week! Last week as I was hopping around to check out everyone’s WW post, I had to stop and smile at Alison‘s in particular. Her photo of her son wearing her Ugg boots just reminded me so much of my kids when they were little! […]

Cars back in the day

Super G. and I were sitting here talking about how things have changed for us in the years we’ve been together. One topic we can never run out memories for is all of the vehicles we’ve had over the years. there have been so many cars, trucks, vans, tractors etc. that I can’t even remember […]

Hapy Mother’s Day!

I hope all the moms are enjoying their special day with a little bit of relaxation surrounded by their loved ones! I’ve had a wonderful day so far. My man got me a new sewing machine that’s all fancy so I have something new to learn :) I thought I’d share the little poem I […]

As one of our family traditions, a large part of our family gathers every year to celebrate the holidays together and we usually have a lot of fun and laughter going on, it can be quite chaotic at times! Everyone brings a dish (or 5!) and we spend the day eating, talking, sharing memories and […]

Wordless Wednesday – Mom in the past

Mom’s been scanning old pictures and she emailed these one over this week. There are so few pictures of mom when she was a child, it’s a treat to see this! Mom, Beatrice, is the baby on the left with the socks on, her twin sister, Blanche, is on the right. Well, Mom THINKS she’s […]

Remembering Papa

My mom and her sisters and brothers have been running themselves ragged this past month. Trying to keep Papa in comfort and keep him entertained. He had been in the soldier’s & Sailor’s home for several years and then just recently moved to the VA Hospital Hospice for the past month. It’s been a long […]
